Forum: prelinger Subject: MPEG 2 scaling

hi,

what software should be used to restore the MPEG 2 videos that are stored here in the half-width format (stretched vertically)?

thanks in advance for any responses, apologies if this has been already asked before, couldn't find it in the previous threads.

By "restore" do you mean to view only, or do you mean to convert to a square pixel (or some other) standard? You can view with Video Lan (http://www.videolan.org/ - free) and you can convert and edit with Video Explosion Deluxe (originally Video Factory when Sonic Foundry made it - $80 http://www.novadevelopment.com/products/productinfo.aspx?productcode=vew )

Yes, I was talking about viewing mostly, thanks. Actually I've just discovered that with BSPlayer you can modify the aspect ratio practically without limits as well, plus the pan-scan, zoom, etc.

All I know that works is to save the file to an AVI in virtualdubmod, then put it in premeire, render it and viola, it seems to be a normal aspect ratio. However this process is tedious to simply view the film (great for editing though). So I too would be interested to see if anyone has anything simpler.
